    Default Jaguar Catfish Compatability

    Howzit, I'm looking at purchasing a Jaguar Catfish. says they are generally peaceful but defend their hideouts like mad. Are these ok in a community aquarium with rainbows and cherry barbs? I googled around a bit but couldn't find much.
    30g: 2x dwarf gouramis, 2x blue gouramis, 9 neon tetras, and one pleco.

    75g: just started cycling. Thinking about rainbows and black orange-eye tiger shrimp.

    The jaguar catfish will eat something as small as cherry barbs,but large rainbows will work out fine.This species is nocturnal,and barely if ever comes out in daylight.

    i have a pair of jaguar cats in my 65 gallon with 3 zebra danio, 3 leopard danio. 1 gold severum(soon to be rehomed) and 2 green severums. also 1 BN pleco. so far i have not noticed any aggression, although i started out with 8 danios and now have 6. i can only assume it was the catfish as i havent noticed my severums even acknowledging the fact that the danios exist. but for the most part, in my experience, the catfish are very interesting and somewhat peaceful(still aggressive but not overly so). i wouldnt put them in a tank smaller than 55-65 gallons though as they get pretty big and fat. mine tripled in size within 2 months.
    Coastie-to-be... hopefully.
